Artist: Mr fiend
Who are you, where are you from?
My name is Mr Fiend. I live, work and play in London.
What do you do?
I create work and characters that come from my imagination.
I try to keep my stuff quite surreal as I think it suits my personality that way.
I am always evolving my style but this year I plan to get myself out there more for people to see. Keep your eyes pealed kids.
Why do you do it?
I have always loved art/design/illustration since I was a kid.
Being an artist myself has always been the best way to express my ideas and my plan in life.
How do you create these images?
I use various design programs but I prefer to work using vectors. Usually I sketch things out roughly first and then adapt and build on it in Illustrator.
Who are your influences?
There are so many great artists out there. To name a few: Hayao Miyazaki, Salvador Dali, Jeff Soto, Victor Castillo, Femke Hiemstra, Nobrow, Jerome Opeña (Marvel), DFace, Roid, Rime, Parra and all my friends.
What inspires your work?
I take inspiration from things that I love such as; computer games, anime, all the cartoons that I loved as a kid, comics, street art, graffiti.. All my friends and family especially my Wife.
What do you like?
I like travelling the world, laughing, eating and surfing my subconscious through dreams.
What don’t you like?
I don’t like salad.
